- A Wealth of Foods and International Flavors Concentrated in Tokyo
- Tokyo is blessed with fresh foods, typified by Edo Tokyo vegetables and various kinds of seafood. Recently, dining establishments in Tokyo proactively using foods from Tokyo are working to promote local production for local consumption as “Tokyo’s Locavore Restaurants”. The number of restaurants registered with this movement, which is working to broaden the appeal of agricultural and marine products harvested in Tokyo, has grown to 358 as of February, 2018. Tokyo is home not only to Japanese cuisine such as sushi or tempura, but also offers a wealth of diverse dining spanning global flavors, including French and Italian. Even the famous “Michelin Guide”, published by Michelin of France to introduce restaurants and accommodations, recognizes the quality of cuisine available in Tokyo as some of the top in the world.
